Hello friends & welcome to Heartfelt Wednesday...

Do you sometimes need to make a card but don't have enough time???
Well if you are in such a situation then I have a solution for you...

Sometimes we all need to make a card that is quick but still looks beautiful and when times like this arises then I turn to my dies... A quick way is to make the card base using a large lacy frame die like Intricate Swirl Frames Die. This just takes a minute but the results are beautiful.
I have also used Frame a Card Leafy Borders Die to create another border inside the die cut cardbase.
This is a very versatile die that has 4 different sizes of borders which can be used to create a border for a lot of card sizes and they can be used independently also as borders or accent pieces. If you click on the link it will take you to the product inspiration page where you can get a lot of ideas to use these dies.

Coming back to the current card... I think glitter adds a lot of interest to any card. and a mess free way of adding glitter is to use glitter cardstock and glitter embossing powder such as  WOW metallic silver sparkle embossing powder.
